This new restaurant – on the site of what was Piquet – is apparently inspired by the ancient Aegean civilisations. That basically means a menu influenced by Greek and Mediterranean cuisines, cooked with simple cooking and prep techniques. There's also a 'no-avocado' policy, which some might cheer. Currently, it's only open for breakfast and lunch, with dinner coming soon. Breakfasts include options such as chargrilled plums with kaymak honey, salted pistachios and toasted brioche, crispy sujuk on sourdough with dill mayo, tomato and a fried egg, and baked eggs with smoked tomato, charred peppers, yoghurt, chilli oil and grilled flatbread. Lunch includes grilled halloumi with charred fennel, maple beetroot, marinated peppers, spiced walnuts and fresh herbs, and flaked smoked mackerel with grilled sourdough, sumac, onions, parsley, apple and dill.
Venue says: “Turkish restaurant, inspired by flavours of the Aegean. Focusing on mezze brunches and morning-to-night sharing plates.”
